This is the first book of its kind that calls attention to an important fact- parents can make a tremendous impact on their child through behavioral practices taught at home. Dr. Barbera has created a tool kit that any parent can use to help remediate-and in some cases eliminate-some symptoms of autism and other developmental delays in young children, even in as little as 15 minutes a day. Developmental delays and signs of autism usually show up before 18 months of age but, because of lack of knowledge, denial and long waiting lists for evaluations and treatment, children are often not diagnosed until four or five years of age. This book is for parents of young children aged one-to-five years who are passionate about helping their child as well as learning how they can return their lives to as much normalcy as possible. Turn Autism Around delivers a new message- autism and other developmental delays can be remediated, and in some cases, delays can be caught up altogether, if parents intervene while the child is young. This book introduces a novel approach to teaching kids with developmental delays that uses the science of Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) but marries it with a positive, child-friendly methodology that any parent can use-whether or not their child has delays-to learn to teach communication skills, socialization strategies, as well as tackle sleep, eating, toileting, and behaviour challenges in a positive, effective, and lasting way. This book will educate parents that they can't afford to wait and worry about autism as well as empower them to regain hope and take back control with simple strategies they can implement themselves-even 15 minutes a day-to dramatically improve outcomes for their children.
